Flour Substitutions

Almond Meal and Flour
Almonds can do nearly anything wheat flour can do. It is full of monounsaturated fat (the good fat), protein, and fiber. Almond flour is great for baked goods with a light texture, such as cakes. Almond meal is coarser than almond flour. It is also less expensive and easier to find.

Coconut Flour
Coconut flour is made of ground coconut meat. It is great for breading and thickening liquids. When combined with flour and meal from nuts, it provides a finer texture which is excellent for baking.

Ground Golden Flaxseed
Flaxseed provides Omega-3 fatty acids. Golden flaxseed is great mixed with other flours and meals for baking. Both brown and golden flaxseed work for breading.

Now try some mini pizzas:
